well, here are my favs:

  1. Final Fantasy 6

<A HREF=“”>In easy to digest form, no less</A>

Rather than a top 5 list, since the point of the thread is to mention RPGs that others may not know about, or give referral to them (Which is a really cool idea, btw), I’ll try to list a few good RPGs on each platform that I’ve tried an RPG for.


Mother (Earthbound Zero)
Final Fantasy 3

Game Boy:

Final Fantasy Adventure
Final Fantasy Legend 2


Final Fantasy 4
Der Langrisser
Romancing SaGa 3
Final Fantasy 6
Chrono Trigger


Phantasy Star 2
Phantasy Star 4

Sega Saturn:

Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean
Panzer Dragoon Saga
Langrisser 4


SaGa Frontier
Final Fantasy Tactics
Breath of Fire 3
Front Mission 4
Legend of Mana

Nintendo 64

Paper Mario
Ogre Battle: Person of Lordly Calibur
Quest 64 (I don’t know why I bother with this one, I know no one likes it already)

Sega Dreamcast:

Grandia 2
Phantasy Star Online

Game Boy Advance:

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (I really haven’t found a good GBA RPG besides this one…)


Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (Haven’t really found a good GCN RPG besides this one…)

Playstation 2:

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter
Final Fantasy 10
Growlanser 2
Growlanser 3
Shadow Hearts

My favourite rpg is just simply ‘chrono cross’.I have yet to find a game where I involved myself in like I have in Chrono.

The ones listed in my profile+all FFs (in a top 10 manner)+Bahamut Lagoon. BL rocked…the mix between Advance Wars and FF. THAT was some cool stuff. Fantabulous. Did I praise it enough?

In no order

Final Fantasy Tactics
Shadow Hearts Covenant
Suikoden II
Suikoden III
Lunar SSSC

I’m sure Phantom Brave, La Pucelle and Disgaea will be up there… whenever I get a chance to play them.

In this case, tried literally means only getting to the sperm shooting bug boss. :stuck_out_tongue:


Hey SG, you forgot your ultimate fun game, Breath of Fire 2

Now I just remembered what I did at I’ll put a link to it in my sig. Every game that I own, I love.

PS2 :

Shadow Hearts (and probably Covenant too, but I haven’t beaten it yet)
Final Fantasy X
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne


Final Fantasy VII
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night


Final Fantasy VI
Chrono Trigger
Seiken Densetsu 3

Breath of Fire 2 IS pretty gheyenstein, but I’d have to say that my ‘ultimate fun game’ is a two way tie between Star Ocean 2 and 7th Saga. :stuck_out_tongue:

Dammit, now I want to tell Gamespot every game I own. This could take <I><B>days</B></I>. :smiley:

I liked it :slight_smile:

I like YOU. :slight_smile:

Chrono Cross
Chrono Trigger

In no particuler order, and clearly I am a Square fan:

Final Fantasy 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9
Saga Frontier 2
Chrono Trigger
Chrono Cross
Entire Dragon Warrior/Quest series
Super Mario RPG
Vagrant Story

EDIT-- I forgot about Breath of Fire 1-3

<A HREF=“”>Now, I have also done so</A>. And I guess I’ll put it in my sig, as well. They didn’t have a few of the games that I have in their system, though. Somewhere around 30 or 40 games. They didn’t let me catalog my strategy guides, either.
